Lalu Prasad lashes out at Nitish Kumar, says he was aware of conviction in fodder scam case

RJD chief Lalu Prasad lashed out at Nitish Kumar saying that he was aware of his conviction in a fodder scam case when the Mahagathbandhan was formed.

Lalu also reminded Nitish of his tall claims of never opting for a tie-up with the 'saffron' party BJP. He clarified on his son Tejashwi, saying his party was ready to go to public on 27 August, the day the RJD has called a anti BJP rally in Patna.

"There was no need of Tejashwi's resignation as CBI action was politically motivated and orchestrated by BJP central leadership", he said.

Further, Lalu showed some papers alleging Nitish Kumar was facing a murder case dated 31 August 2009 by a lower court in Barh. The RJD leader accused Nitish of influencing the Judge for the proceedings against him.

"Now this case is in Patna High Court. Nitish knew that the court can summon him any day", Lalu said.

He slammed Nitish's claims of zero tolerance against corruption alleging many of his ministers are deep in the mud of corruption. When Lalu Prasad came to know of the decision, he tried to convince Kumar to change his decision. However, he did not budge.

"I appeal Nitish to fight communal forces. Lets all MLAs of JDU, RJD and Congress sit together and chose a new leader but I have my doubts. He (Nitish Kumar) is all set to side with BJP and playing drama before that.", he said.
